Interested in joining my group as a postdoc?

I would be glad to talk with you if you have prior experience in algorithm development in phylogenomics, multiple sequence alignment, or metagenomics. Funding for this postdoc would be provided in part by the Computer Science Department, through the Future Faculty Fellows program. The research projects for each postdoc will be focused on producing new methods and software that can dramatically improve accuracy on large datasets, and hence will be used in biological data analysis. This work also involves proving theorems about the methods that we develop, using probability theory to predict performance under Markov models of evolution, but then testing these predictions in simulation. Research in my lab requires strong skills in algorithm design and analysis and software development. In addition, excellent interpersonal skills, oral and written communication skills, and a passion for research are also necessary.

Your qualifications: The ideal candidate will have all the following attributes:

Note that experience in bioinformatics or knowledge of biology is desirable but not necessary (and can be learned while in the position).

To apply, please submit your application through the Future Faculty Fellows program, and list me me as a potential advisor. If you wish to contact me direclty, please send me:
